People Are Angry After Young Woman Has Job Interview Cancelled For Asking One Question

One of the most important things that any prospective employee wants to know when they apply for a job is what they’ll be getting into if they accept the position, and employers want to know who it is they’re hiring. Both phone and in-person interviews take a great deal of time because they need to inquire about certain things, and the interviewer needs to allow the applicant to ask any questions about the job. Yet there are times when someone can leave a bad impression, and it may not even be intentional. This is exactly what happened when a woman interviewed for a job, and it was a company that she hoped to have the opportunity to work for.

She was very interested in this new startup company that seemed to have a great deal of potential, so she decided to submit an application. When she got the interview, there was a line of communication that had been opened. But when she asked one simple question that seemed reasonable enough, the doors slammed shut before she could even get to first base. After the phone interview, she sent an email asking about compensation and whether they had a benefits package. And the response left her at a loss.

The email said that, based on her questions, the interviewer felt that she wasn’t a good for the company. But everyone would agree that it was a pretty extreme reaction to a perfectly reasonable question. After all, they can’t expect her to work for free. But it didn’t end there. She decided to offer this woman an explanation, but it only made things worse. In fact, what the interviewer said to her was rather surprising. Instead of money (which we use to pay bills, buy food, and basically live), they think it’s more important to embrace challenges and seek out new opportunities that can help the company grow.

Most people would rather have the money.

And when she posted a screenshot of the email on her social media, people started reacting in a way that got the attention of the company’s CEO. When a business owner finds out that a mass amount of people decided to boycott his or her company because of the way they treated a prospective employee, it would be a cause for concern. And it got so bad that he sent her an apology along with an offer to schedule an in-person interview. He even made sure that certain measures are taken to make sure that something like this doesn’t happen again. A good training program on how to conduct an interview would be a good idea.

Thousands of Years Old Penguin Colony Has Disappeared

Recently, there was a tragic sea-ice collapse in the Antarctic. As a result, thousands of emperor penguins are presumed to be dead. These birds were said to be raising their chicks on a massive chunk of ice. Two years ago, a major storm hit the Wendell Sea. This caused the ice to weaken, and thousands of baby penguins drowned. According to officials with the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), as the Antarctic continues to warm up, experts are worried that there will be more incidents like this in the future.

The Emperor Penguin

The emperor penguin is the tallest and heaviest of all penguins. The ice where they raise their young needs to be incredibly sturdy. Between April and December, the ice has to be strong enough to hold the weight of thousands of birds. Since we don’t have people out in this area, the BAS relies on satellite images to check up on the penguin. They have confirmed that the entire colony is gone. Because this species is near extinction, this was a significant loss.

The Satellite Image

It was Dr. Peter Fretwell, a member of BAS, who first looked at the satellite image and discovered that the colony was no longer there. He says that part of his job is to look at the images from the satellites to check on the condition of the ice and the creatures that live there. Initially, he thought that he was looking at the wrong image when he saw that the penguins were gone. When he double checked and saw that he was looking at the correct image, he was devastated. There were thousands of penguins on the ice the day before. Penguins can breathe underwater, but they can hold their breath underwater for a long time. After falling into the water with no ice to stand on, it was just a matter of time before the thousands of penguins died.

The Danger

Dr. Fretwell believes that the weakening of the ice and the warmer waters will put the existence of the emperor penguin in great danger. Because our oceans are warming up at such a rapid rate, the ice is melting just as quickly. He says that the emperor penguin isn’t the only animal at risk due to the warming of the oceans. Polar bears are also in danger. When a female polar bear gives birth, she hunts on the sea ice. She needs it to travel to different regions looking for food. If there is less sea ice, the females will need to go longer without food. This can hinder their reproductive success and their fat storage. If the summer ice completely disappears, the polar bears will need to live on land, which can put their survival at considerable risk.

The walrus and several species of seals also at risk while the sea ice melts. Seabirds, such as the ivory gull is also at risk. Over the last two decades, the number of ivory gulls in Canada has dropped by 90 percent. This number is only expected to rise.

Dr. Fretwell has tried to get people to listen when it comes to the dangers of Global Warning. Unfortunately, there are still people, some in power, who don’t believe in Global Warming or who refuse to admit that it is a serious issue. Sadly, by the time people finally decide to act, several animal species will no longer roam the Earth. The disappearance of the emperor penguin colony is just the beginning. Dr. Fretwell says that it is just a matter of time before more species are wiped off the planet.

A Young Man’s Journey to Feed the Needy

If you’ve ever felt a need for inspiration, a young man’s story is sure to warm your heart and soul. Liam Hannon saw homeless people on his way to school every morning, and felt horrible for them. When school let out he asked his dad, Scott Hannon, if he could take them lunches for their afternoon meal. Scott thought it was a wonderful idea filled with love and caring, and wasted no time getting the required materials together to begin the project.

c.o0bg.com

Background

Liam lives in a small Massachusetts town, where at ten years old he had just finished fifth grade last year when the project started. Lunches for Love, as the small business is aptly titled, began with Liam and Scott making 20 lunches every week to hand out to the impoverished homeless people in town. Unlike most pre-teen young men, Liam decided to forego television and video games in the hopes of accomplishing something far more rewarding and of value to the community.

What He Does

Once started, the project seemed to take on a life of its own. Liam started a Go Fund Me account to help sponsor the growing needs of Lunches for Love. He works in tandem with a local community adult resource, the Hildrebrand Family Help Center, in an attempt to not just feed the homeless but to help provide them with the skills and resources they need to lift their lives to something more fulfilling. To this end, by the end of the summer he was making up to 60 lunches each week to hand out. Although he did have to go back to school when autumn arrived, but continues to hand out as many lunches as possible on weekends. Of course, that is between completing his homework on time, studying for tests, and generally being a great student at the top of his class for grades.

Why He Feeds the Poor

Liam has his own reasons for feeding the poor, which is the sheer honesty of children. He saw they looked hungry, that hurt his feelings, so he decided to do something about it. As a ten year old child is wont to do, he asked his dad for help and advice to get started, needless to say, he has a great dad who was absolutely supportive of the idea and used the opportunity to make it a father/ son project. When the local community realized what was going on, they asked questions to find out that even though he had some help, the project was the brainstorm of a young man. Everybody was amazed and impressed by the boy’s ambition and willingness to give so selflessly of his time a generous gift to those in need. If you ever find yourself lacking in inspiration, remember what this young man has accomplished and allow the story to lift your spirits at the what can be accomplished when you set your mind to it.

The Case of the Ever-Growing Nose – Medical Kindness in Action

Young people are constantly afraid how they look will reflect on their social status and getting through teenagehood. So imagine how fearful and frustrating it could be if, beginning with the most socially impressionable phase of a young life, your nose started growing uncontrollably. This is exactly what happened to one young lady from Louisiana, Pamela Ichard.

Pamela grew up with a very normal childhood. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary and looking at all her school photos, nobody would notice anything out of the ordinary. However, at 15 and going through her worst phase of acne, Pamela realized her facial changes were not temporary and something more serious was occurring. The acne was more severe, and the actual surface of her skin was transforming around her nose. Everyone thought it was just a bad case of acne that she would grow out of, like every teenager before. Unfortunately, that was not the case.

What was actually happening to Pamela was a skin condition known as Rosacea. It would progress into most of her adult life, but as a teenager she had no idea. Pamela simply thought she was unlucky kid with bad acne. In her 20s though the difference in her nose became apparent. No longer did she have the thin cute nose of her childhood. Instead, her nose was already larger, rounder and more pronounced. This became very evidence as Pamela entered motherhood and had two children. What she thought at first was just a skin reaction turned out to be permanent disfigurement of Pamela’s nose. In addition, the rest of the skin around her nasal area and cheeks changed texture and become rougher and uneven. As her children grew older, Pamela resigned herself to a more and more pronounced facial feature without any solution or cure.

By the time Pamela was 46, she had lived with her form of Rosacea for more than 30 years. Specifically, her severe condition is known as Rhinophyma. The exact reason why it affected Pamela is unknown but the physical deformation is obvious, and in her case literally on the front of her face, a practically unavoidable situation in terms of being seen. This affected Pamela psychologically, changing her temperament from a happy young person to a chronically unhappy adult. And it was not as if Pamela didn’t seek help; she tried multiple doctors and ten times as many prescriptions. However, none of the drugs or medicines prescribed had any effect. Instead, her condition just seemed to get worse.

Finally, being a 2016 case on a TV show called the Doctors, Pamela let the entertainment world see her condition on the off chance someone medically might have a solution. It worked; Dr. Ann Zedlitz agreed to take on the case surgically and help Pamela. The results were amazing. Pamela finally had a normal-looking nose and face again after three decades of suffering. And best of all, the surgery was provided for free. Since the surgery Pamela has begun enjoying her life again and, best of all, she’s smiling again.
